Default WC gobies and F1 P. Trews

I am wondering if the gobies are stressing out my petros. I had 34 petros ranging for 1.5 to 3 inches. I have 4 gobies (blue spots, 2m/2f) between 2.5 to 3.5 inches. Several of my petros have died. I treated with metro although I don't think they had bloat. All of the water parameters tested fine.
Do you think the gobies may be stressing them? I moved the gobies to another tank to see if this helps. I know in the past when I did a mixed troph tank, the bigger trophs would chase the smaller guys until they died from stress.
Thanks, Rob.

I can`t see how a gobie could stress out a Petro ,do they bother your Petros? I`ve kept gobies with Trophs and Petros and they ignore each other, gobies can "catch" bloat from Petros or Trophes.

possible internal parasite they were carrying?.......metro wouldn't treat some of the stuff that lays dormant or can be triggered due too stress,my guess its whats going on when your not looking.......maybe treat the whole tank with something like prai-pro that covers other possibility's that metro wont treat......wont hurt too be safe at this point it sounds
